Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Agrawal being welcomed by Union Minister Piyush Goyal as he joins BJP

Sushma Swaraj tweeted, "Naresh Agarwal has joined Bhartiya Janata Party".

As an MLA, he represented the Hardoi constituency and is a member of the Samajwadi Party political party.

"My comparison was drawn with those working in films".

He described his joining the BJP as "homecoming" and said he would unconditionally do whatever the party wanted him to. I was rejected for those who dance in films, work in films. "I did not find it right", Agrawal said in the presence of Goyal and Patra. But I don't have any conditions.

Agarwal, who was inducted in the party at its New Delhi headquarters, embarrassed BJP with his acerbic remark on Bachchan.

Agrawal also said that his MLA son will vote in favour of the BJP in the Rajya Sabha polls.

SP's seven times MLA from Hardoi, Naresh Agrawal along with his son Nitin Agrawal who is the present MLA of the district also stated that being a part of National party allows the ministers to create a change in the society easily in comparison to those who are not in power.

Harvey Schwartz out of Goldman succession race
Before that, he served as Goldman's chief financial officer and quarterbacked the firm's transition to tougher regulation. The firm's fixed-income trading business, which produced Schwartz, is coming off its worst year in more than a decade.

In November 2013, Agrawal had called Modi a madari, a street performer.

"I am inspired by the Prime Minister and Yogiji".

"Naresh Agrawal ji felt he could serve the country and his state better if he joined the BJP", Goyal added.

If reports were to be believed, Agarwal was unhappy with the party president and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for giving the ticket to actor-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan in the Rajya Sabha seat. We have always welcomed leaders from Samajwadi Party with open arms since these are 2 very like-minded parties.

Agarwal, who belongs to the trading community, also referred to the traditional support of the community to the BJP. He has also stoked controversies.

"I am most grateful to Mulayam Singh Yadav and others".
